Wasn’t that a mighty storm

It was quite a storm last night: commuter trains still not up, more than a half-million homes without power, hundreds of downed trees and damaged houses, a collapsed house in Fishtown, and at least eight reported funnel clouds in the area.

The sky was the eerie green you see in tornado weather, but the tornadoes hit to the east and west of me. One area mall was hit, it ripped off part of their facade and turned a car on its head.

And I am such an awful person that when I watched the news last night, and saw how much of the damage was in the suburbs, I thought to myself, “Yep. Just keep voting Republican and we’ll never fix this.”

UPDATE: Storm photo was not local. It was from Texas.
